Update: Since this entry was written, Equinux have released official Windows drivers and you should use those instead. This entry is retained for historical purposes but is now out of date.
Equinux’s TubeStick is a great budget DVB-T tuner for Macs – but out of the box, it will only work on a Mac. Put it into a Windows PC and the Find Hardware Wizard will simply mull over it for a few minutes before coming up blank.
The good news is that there is a signed Windows driver for it, or at least the model I have. The TubeStick is based around the Afatech AF9015 chipset, and the driver can be downloaded from. It apparently works with Windows XP and Vista – I only tried it on XP SP2 but it seemed to work okay.
To actually watch TV, you’ll also need some software to interact with the TubeStick, and it’s here that I’ve come up blank, however, getting the driver should be a good starting point.
I’m working on a full review of the TubeStick on a Mac but I’ve pushed it back a bit since a new version of The Tube (the Mac software you use with it) has been released with some new features. I’m liking it so far though.
